Just wondered if anyone could offer some advice please.
GP referred me to Endo last year (fourth one) but he refuses to treat me. He was informed that blood tests I'd obtained confirmed that I have high level of rt3 and below range rt3 ratio. Problem with T4 to T3 conversion.
I have a copy of the email my GP send and also of his reply, in which he states that for my condition;
'the only solution to abnormalities in T3 metabolism in women with hypothyroidism is a trial of T3. This can be attempted but we are now unable to prescribe the pharmacological version - Liothyronine due to prohibitive cost. She could access the use of Armour Thyroid which can be self-funded under private care - I would be happy to support her privately should she wish to pursue this and she can contact my secretary or you could refer her to me.'
I am very angry that although this Consultant confirms my ONLY course of action is T3, he won't see me for consultation unless it's on PRIVATE SELF-FUNDED basis only...........I'm FUMING!!!!!!
Any information please on my course of redress ....... what can I do?
